Are you a high school or undergraduate student interested in experiencing scientific research and tree science?
Are you excited to learn new skills while getting paid?
Are you worried about applying because you don’t have any experience?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, this introductory internship is for you. Students with little or no experience are invited to participate in ongoing research at The Morton Arboretum, be mentored by our scientists, and see what it’s like to join a scientific research group. Experience careers that explore solutions for climate change, biodiversity, natural resources management, and urban life. Laboratory, computer, and outdoor field opportunities available.
To apply, individuals will complete the online application form; a resume and cover letter are not required. A brief true/false survey will be sent immediately to confirm interest, followed within one week by a required questionnaire to determine project interest and allow applicants to provide additional details.
Applications will close at 5:00 p.m. (Central time) on Friday, September 30, 2022, or until the positions have been filled.
The Center for Tree Science’s Integrated Mentorship Program is committed to supporting students and professionals at every stage in their careers. As the Arboretum continues to grow a diverse and inclusive program, flexible work assignments and additional assistance may be available.
Individuals from schools and universities with limited research opportunities, groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM programs, first- and second-year undergraduates, persons with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply.
